V3 - Legel Requirements
The prototype switches we (GSI) received from 7Sols, were intended for experimental use. However, the legal requirements and standards for products sold in the EU shall also be fulfilled. An example, the switches need to be CE certified and require a CE label.
The switches to be delivered to FAIR must fulfill those legal requirements that apply to such kind of products. Actually, I am not fully aware what kind of products need to fulfill which kind of standard and legal requirement. Moreover, I was told that I do not have to take care about this, but it is the supplier/company producing and selling the switches that needs to take care of this business.
So please consider THIS issue not as a complain but rather as a reminder that legal requirements and standards must be addressed.
As a guideline for GSI/FAIR, please have a look at https://edms.cern.ch/file/1171992/2/F-GS-B-01e_General_Specifications_v0.4.pdf section 4 "Legal Requirements, standards and internal regulations".
